My networks
I graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Applied Biology, from the University of Aveiro (Portugal). During this period, I joined the Wildlife Unit and the Bussaco National Forest Foundation with whom I did a curricular internship in which I studied the effects of invasive plant species and drought regimes in the macrofungi communities, which provided me with a useful experience with real implication on natural resources management.

Later on, I obtained a Master’s degree in Ecology and Environmental Management at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon. In the MSc’s final year, I engaged a curricular internship in the Directorate-General for Maritime Policy with the theme: "Comparison of the Evolution of the Ocean Economy of Portugal, Iceland, Norway and the United Kingdom”. It was during this time that I started developing a strong interest in the way businesses work and learned a lot about the application of economic science in an environmental context across different countries. 

More recently, I am a PhD student in the BioDiv PhD programme where I will be focused on the way how businesses integrate biodiversity and ecosystem services in the decision-making process in the Water-Food-Energy Nexus. During this time, I will continue contributing to the identification of practical resource management measures, keep in touch with the business sector, and continue the work of articulating these issues with policies and decision-making, especially in cross-sectoral and relevant topics that provide essential tools to achieve an economically sustainable society.
